According to Glassdoor research and employee reviews, work-life balance has steadily declined over the past 7 years. And Arianna Huffington knows why.
“For far too long we have been operating under a collective delusion that burning out is the necessary price for achieving success. This couldn’t be less true,” said the founder of The Huffington Post. Now, she’s doing something about it.
Today, Thrive Global, Arianna Huffington’s new and groundbreaking venture has launched. The company aims to revolutionize the way we work and live by offering companies and individuals science-based solutions to lower stress and burnout, and enhance well-being and productivity. Glassdoor, one of the leading job search sites that also offers job seekers access to company reviews, ratings and salary data for more than 600,000 companies globally, is delighted to be a launch partner with Thrive Global.
Starting today, employers may sign on to Pledge to Thrive to show they’re taking steps to prioritize well-being in their workplace. Any employer who has signed on to Pledge to Thrive may promote their commitment to candidates and recruits as part of their employer brand on their company’s Glassdoor profile. In 2017, Glassdoor and Thrive Global will release a co-branded Thrive Index based on employees’ assessments of how their employer incorporates meaningful “thrive” practices into their workplaces and culture.
“As an employer and as a growing platform where employers actively recruit candidates and manage their employer brands, Glassdoor recognizes the value of helping employees thrive inside and outside of work,” said Robert Hohman, co-founder and CEO of Glassdoor. “Jobs are more than paychecks. Today’s top talent want to work for a company with a strong mission and purpose where they feel like they can make a difference, and where they believe they are supported as a person with a life outside of work.”
To that end, Glassdoor is amplifying its data, research and editorial content on Thrive’s new publishing platform on Medium. From company culture to work-life balance and executive leadership, Glassdoor articles will appear daily on Medium to present the latest from both the employer and employee points of view. Our goal is to empower employers, employees and job seekers with all of the tools to help you love your job.
